MCP USA has earned the highest rank of certification for Food Safety with a Packing Scope through the British Retail Consortium Global Standard (BRCGS) with a “AA” rating. Led by Quality Assurance Supervisor, Ashley Jongkind, the MCP USA team worked tirelessly to prepare for the audit. It took 8 months total to build and implement all the procedures and policies.
Upon the team’s return from tech training in Israel mid-July 2018, they began working on preparing for the prestigious certification. Upper Management fully supported the journey towards certification, without them and the rest of the staff achieving an AA would have been impossible. The BRCGS demonstrates our commitment to stand by our promise of quality for both our products and facilities.
Jongkind further added, “BRC stands for the most robust standards of quality, safety, and hygiene. MCP USA had a vision for quality from day one, before all the equipments even arrived to the facility in Portage, IN. Achieving this certification wasn’t easy, but it stands as a guarantee that our customers will have a safe product.”
BRC requires a total team effort. It was really quite magical as we did not have a single non-conformance on the factory floor.
As a global developer and manufacturer of advanced custom co-extruded thermoplastics for the food industry, receiving the highest possible ranking is a great achievement and a massive honor.
